Ring in the New Year with Beethoven and Dvořák at their best!
Pacific Symphony opens 2020 with a night of music written and inspired by Beethoven with guest conductor Christian Arming manning the podium. The evening kicks off with a show-stopping performance of Beethoven’s iconic Violin Concerto by internationally acclaimed violinist Clara-Jumi Kang. Afterwards, Dvořák’s beloved Symphony No. 8 brings the program to an exhilarating end in a tour de force of musical fervor! This is Beethoven at his best – lyrical, spirited and epic. Dvořák, while greatly inspired by the great German, expresses his own Bohemian lyricism in his Symphony No. 8, filled with indelible melodies and themes that flow like no other symphony.
This concert is part of the Symphony’s 2019-20 Hal & Jeanette Segerstrom Family Foundation Classical Series.
